Classic Drama:Fall of Eagles – E01 – Death Waltz


Franz Josef has been Austrian emperor since 1848, yet he remains unmarried five years later. His mother, Archduchess Sophie, is determined to ensure the Habsburg line and favours her niece Helene as the future empress. Franz, however, has other ideas when he prefers Helene’s 15-year-old sister Elisabeth. However, the young Bavarian princess struggles to deal with her new position as empress of Austria, motherhood, and with her domineering mother-in-law. Endeavouring to create her own space, she re-friends her old Hungarian mentor Count Majlath, and begins an unwelcome fixation with his country.
